Coffins from Girls just wanna get Spooky Gathering

These darling coffins were cut from wood with a back brace added to allow it to stand.  They were painted black.  The sizes ranged from approximately 5 inches tall to 12 inches tall.   Then everyone was allowed to grab one or more for a project.   We had papers including the Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland!     Some were decoupaged in total, some simply embellished.  These examples were done by Linda Anquoe of Phoenix.

Girls Just Wanna Get Spooky

One of the items made at Girls Just Wanna Get Spooky, Saturday Oct. 15, 2011 Gold Bazzill cardstock was used for the base, with a cuttlebug folder using black Bazzill cardstock creating the next layer after it had been punched by a Martha Stewart punch of dripped 'blood'!    A die cut of a spider's web frame was an overlay on the cat image and a touch of orange glitter added.  The finishing touch was purple grosgrain ribbon.   OHHHH so spooky. Steampunk Stella came ready for action.   She even carried a tiny derringer in her pocketbook.   Stella's bowler hat was authentic and her lace wristlet was exquisite with gears, gems and more added.  Her brooch was adorned with watch parts and feathers of the most exotic style.  The Necessity shelves contained important items for any spooky gathering, jars of bats lashes, little girls curls, lizard tongues, fallen stars, EEKs and so much more. This little witch flew in from 700 miles away.  Her broom had to be refueled alo

So very excited to tell you

I have been collaborating with an artist who is new to me.  She came to me with some special requests and for an unknown reason, I felt I needed to take the time to accommodate her requests.   Well, we have some fabulous art to share with you all.   This wonderful Artist is Jeannette Bryant from Louisiana. She has a clear image of what she wants to produce and has a sense of humor to boot!  I am happy to show off her newest pieces using images with her great words. She has applied oversize images to canvas and then embellished the heck out of them too!    Her art is selling at a local farmers market.    Please help congratulate her on her work.

Christmas Night

I love this image from Altered Pages. It reminds me of Christmas many years ago. I incorporated Altered Pages and Heartfelt Creations stamp. I used a spellbinders die to include a "window" onto the front of the card. I cut out the candle, embossed and placed it near the "window" I incuded some sprigs of green from Martha Stewart punch. Looks like a tree outside the window.

Treat or Trick

I am not fond of Halloween, but at Altered Pages , the images were just so enchanting not to make a card. Nothing fancy, just a little something to make you smile.
